    Book Review - Tilogos

    An exposition on the development of language

    "Burning for Freedom" by Anurupa Cinar tells the life story of Vinayak Damodar Savarkar (May 28, 1883-February 26, 1966). Savarkar, a Brahmin Hindu, was a key freedom fighter who helped liberate India from being under British Rule. He is responsible for creating a secret revolutionary society known as Abhinav Bharat whose influence spread throughout India. Savarkar’s efforts caused him to be imprisoned by the British for many years at the brutal Cellular Jail. During his time spent there Savarkar was treated inhumanely, like many of the other political prisoners who were also imprisoned there. Refusing to be beaten down and give up on India gaining her freedom, Savarkar could not be defeated. He felt that while India was under the rule of the British Empire, his people were enslaved because they had no constitution or rights with which they could be protected.

    Review of Exodus Lost

    Exodus Lost reopens outstanding cold cases from antiquity and tracks down their solutions using cutting-edge science, classical scholarship, and tenacity. The adventure begins with an epic journey across the Atlantic Ocean that Aztec and Mayan chronicles describe as their ancestral voyage to Mexico. By mapping the details within these texts, the author locates their lost homeland and corroborates their traditions of an ocean-crossing long before Columbus or the Vikings. From this follow a series of groundbreaking discoveries into the origins of Mexican civilization, the roots of Western civilization, the creation of the alphabet, the history of the pyramids, and even new archaeological evidence for several major Bible stories. Enter a world of exploration and discovery, mystery and revelation. Whether your passion is archaeology or religion, history or simply a great adventure, Exodus Lost delivers. Beautifully illustrated with 126 photos, maps, and engravings.

    Against the backdrop of his most haunting, high-profile murder and child abuse cases, a veteran prosecutor goes beyond an insider's reflection to shine a light on the humanlike qualities personified in the U.S. criminal justice system and what this means for our future. "The Humanity of Justice," by Burke Strunsky is a procedural true-crime book told through the eyes and heart of a veteran criminal prosecutor who cares about the people he meets and their life-altering circumstances. Burke E. Strunsky, a senior deputy district attorney in southern California, takes the reader inside the courtroom for some of the most haunting criminal cases in the state as well as the nation, including: a highly respected church leader who brutally murders his wife for the insurance money while their baby sleeps peacefully in another room; a twisted father who sexually molests his daughter's own friends at her slumber parties; a former police chief who drowns his wife of thirty years in their backyard spa; and a young man who sadistically tortures and kills a helpless three-year-old boy, yet manages to dodge the death penalty.

    A book review of the book Multiply and Divide with Sticks and Steps by Maureen Sterns,B.A.,M.S.

    There are some mysteries in life that will always defy explanation but eventually fade into the category of the “inexplicable” and then there is the category of events that are inexplicable but debatable. The subject of PSI is one of those inexplicable but debatable topics that have always raised questions that have gone unanswered. Luckily there those within the scientific community that have dedicated their knowledge, wisdom and scientific prowess to seeking the truth to the unanswered questions that are raised in terms of humans and the conscious wielding of PSI powers. One such person is Dr. Theresa M. Kelly who is a renowned metaphysicist and bestselling author. Dr. Kelly has compiled a textbook titled Telepathy A Quantum Approach: The Psychical Influence of Thought which aptly details the in depth study and testing of the PSI ability of telepathy and other aspects of PSI within the scientific realm. This book also includes the building blocks needed to help enhance open up your PSI abilities; this also includes a diet regime and changes in thinking and lifestyle. This is a somewhat technical book and uses many scientific terms that may or may not be familiar to the reader. Although the language used is not extremely difficult to understand it would have helped to have an included glossary to help along the reading and learning process. This book reads pretty much like textbook should, it contains a great deal of subject related data and it is presented thoroughly. Also it does help to have a basic understanding of what PSI is and an interest in the various scientific testing processes; in that way the data reported from the scientific aspect of this book makes sense. This book is packed with some eye opening information that will lead the inquisitive reader into looking for further information. The reader/student is also tested on their recently attained knowledge with questions posed at the end of each chapter. A great plus about this book is the included mental exercises that anyone of any level of PSI experience can try and with a bit of effort may receive notable results. Overall this book is a good solid textbook that is rich with information and possibilities for students. I would recommend this book as a text book for students or the learned of the metaphysical.
